Yesterday was a crazy busy day! At work, we had an event and I met Julie Andrews! She is so sweet in person. Good thing I got in a workout to give me energy for the whole day. I worked on my core and upper body followed by 20 minutes on the elliptical.
- russian twists
left side crunches
right side crunches
- knee drives
- tricep pull downs
- double cable bicep curls
- 20 burpees
20 mountain climbers
30 jumping jacks
I completed each set (some singles, I know!) 3 times before moving on to the next.
I’ve been loving green pumpkin pie smoothies, but unfortunately due to time constraints, I barely ever measure anything. Ice, almond milk , vanilla protein powder, chia seeds, flax meal, pumpkin purée, cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin pie spice, stevia, and spinach were all thrown in the blender. I added some honey at the end, too, because it wasn’t sweet enough for me.
Today I completed 4.25 miles on the treadmill. I almost took a rest day because I was tired, but then I remembered Pile on the Miles! The spreadsheet needs to be updated by tomorrow at 8am, and since I am usually running around in the morning, I wanted to make sure I honestly ran the miles and updated prior to that time. So, I am at 7.5 miles as of Tuesday, when the challenge started. Thanks Monica for being my motivation this morning!
I made this up on the fly:
October Goal Recap
Before I get into my November goals later this week, I want to recap my October goals so I can have that accomplished feeling again. I love it! That’s why I continue to set goals each month.
I had 3 simple goals during October, knowing that those were realistically what I could finish.
1. Organize the office and our bedroom. 1/2 complete. I did the office – which was the hardest!
2. Start looking over my new plan of action. Check! I’ve updated you guys about this.
3. Track my finances and cut back. Sort of, check. I reviewed it, but still need to cut back on some things, such as my storage rental fee. I need to sell all of that stuff. I have been really awesome with grocery savings though!
I hope your November is off to a great start!
